HEMS – Helping Encouraging Mentoring Serving

A Christian ministry / provincial support group based in the Halifax Regional Municipality. We are a family-based group, open to ALL homeschoolers, that meets for field trips, swimming lessons, science & history fairs, curriculum nights, Mother/Daughter & Father/Son days.  We offer a curriculum homeschool conference in early June and a family-oriented one in October. We are part of the HSLDA community and work closely with local government and the Department of Education to maintain the rights of families to educate their children as they deem best for their family.
